Delightful Tales From the East of Africa for Young Children

Have you ever heard anyone refer to Africa as a country or make statements as though Africans have a homogeneous culture?  My husband and I worked very hard when raising our children in the United States to make sure they were exposed to the beautiful diversity of the cultures of a variety of African nations.  This list highlights stories that emanate from the eastern region of the African continent.  (For our list of children’s books from West Africa CLICK HERE.)
